The two are very different vibes and each has its place but for me, there's nothing quite like a well-tailored sports jacket with a good shirt. I've never been one for suits, I've had a few but they very rarely get worn and often, by the time they do, they're out of date. The myth of the suit that won't go out of style, is exactly that, a myth. The confidence inspired by a good sports jacket/blazer is incredible. For me, clothes, like manners, are armour. Peace Mr, Knightly.
I, too, rarely wear suits and am more of an odd jacket/sport coat or blazer guy. I concur with the “...confidence inspired by a good sports jacket/blazer...”. If I go out to dinner with the misses, to my local for a couple, or to Mass I’m in a jacket and nice shirt. If I’m at the bar I’m probably wearing jeans. Mass or “date night” I’d be wearing wool trousers and a tie as well.
That sport coat though... it always comes through in style.
Might do that harrington challenge though, I have a few and like the look.
*EDIT* Wow, total stream-of-consciousness post here.
